10 SU Clubs & Societies You Won’t Believe Exist

SU Clubs and Societies is a great way to get involved with your Students’ Union, make new friends and find new hobbies and interests. We have 220 Clubs & Societies, so there’s most definitely something for everyone!

Let’s have a look at some you may be surprised exist…

1. Underwater Hockey Club

Underwater hockey, or octopush, is a fun, fast paced and exhilarating team sport played with short sticks and a puck at the bottom of the pool. Players wear fins, a mask, a snorkel, a protective glove and headgear.

It is a very unique game; it’s 3-dimensional and requires you to play while holding your breath.

Does this sound up your street? Get in touch with the team at underwaterhockey@qub.ac.uk

2. Cheerleading Club

If you’ve ever been interested in cheerleading, look no further! Show your university spirit by cheering with the Knights and perhaps even competing competitively. The Cheerleading club perform stunts, tumbles, dances, and jumps – this may sound intimating, but no experience is necessary for joining.

All ages, sizes, genders, and abilities are welcome. Find out more by visiting them on Facebook or Instagram or get in contact at cheerleading@qub.ac.uk

3. Powerlifting Club

Only ratified in 2021, so relatively new to the SU Clubs & Societies scene, the Powerlifting Club focuses on health, wellbeing and self expression through lifting weights and slamming plates.

Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of maxing out on the “Big Three” lifts: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift. It’s a great way relieve stress, meet new people and have fun (all while getting fitter!).
